Editor:

In reviewing the article published July 24 titled Small Error Leads to New Delay on Brazeau Road, I found a few discrepancies.

Chairperson Wendt’s claim that due to past errors, the location of Half Moon Lake Road is wrong and that he can rectify this situation by giving Don Hoff a portion (0.077 acres) of the South right-of-way is contradictory. It is unsupported by the facts and the evidence and it is unmistakably false.

There is no record of any past errors with regard to the South right-of-way, and Oconto County Survey Map No. 30, dated Dec. 10, 1974, clearly demonstrates that Half Moon Lake Road was always in the correct location. (Source: Oconto Co. Survey Maps)

The errors that were being questioned during the July 22 hearing were errors that Wendt allegedly made when he created Resolution 6a-2013 back in June 2013, which was a repeat of the same errors made when he created Resolution 1-2013 in March 2013.

A the March 2013 hearing, it was pointed out to Wendt that Resolution 1-2013 was seriously flawed with errors and that hearing was then brought to an end.

However, instead of correcting any of the past errors in Resolution 6a-2013, Wendt simply recopied Resolution 1-2013, leaving in the same mistakes and errors in Resolution 6a-2013 that he previously had made in Resolution 1-2013.

When Wendt was questioned about these same errors at the July 22, 2013 hearing, instead of taking responsibility for the errors, he tried to pass the blame on to Mr. Wogsland.

As for the worth of the 0.077 acres of publicly owned property that Wendt plans on giving away to Hoff, it has an assessed value of approximately $7,600. (Source: 2012 Property Tax Roll).

Wendt has already wasted thousands of our tax dollars on property surveys, attorney fees, recording fees, filing fees and advertising costs on this matter.

If Wendt’s deal with Hoff does go through, then the Town stands to receive about $10 or $11 in annual tax revenue from the discontinuance of this 0.077 acres.

In 100 years, the Town will still not have recovered a fraction of the amount of tax dollars that has already been wasted.

Letter to Editor:

Town of Crivitz Residents: 

My parents have a home in Crivitz and are downsizing. They are staying in town but moving to an apartment. We spent two weeks going through their home and setting up for a rummage sale. Being on Social Security they have a limited income (as most of the elderly do) and were hoping to put that money they made to good use.

We put up signs and hoped for a good turnout, which did not happen. All the signs were taken down and when I called the police to report it they told me that they had taken them down. I was told they had just put a new ordinance into effect that prohibited signs on public property.

What was the town thinking to make such a stupid rule? Do you realize how many people this will effect, not to mention business? Does the town of Crivitz realize how many tourists come to town to rummage and then go to the businesses and spend money! This is a tourist town. The sign advertising for the flea market is on public property, why does that get to stay up? I’m sure it’s because Crivitz is making money. Why shouldn’t the people that live here and pay property taxes be able to do the same?

I did not know about the ordinance and was told by the policeman who took my signs down that he was being nice and could have given me a fine of $200. I did not see this change in the newspaper. The signs are up for just a couple of days and then taken down. What harm is it doing to the town? All it’s doing is drawing people in and isn’t that what Crivitz wants?

If the town wants to make some money, give a fine to people that don’t take their signs down after their sale. They all have their address on them. I have seen signs up advertising for the American Legion, the school spring and fall fest, church rummages, politicians and many more. This ordinance will affect all. There are many business signs on public property that have not been taken down. Is this ordinance just for certain people? Don’t get me wrong, I think we all should be able to advertise.

I think the police department of Crivitz could be doing more important things like catching criminals or speeders than taking down rummage sale signs. Crivitz, this was a bad decision you made and it should be changed!!!  What do you think, people of Crivitz?

Laura Sherman,

Wausaukee



To the Editor:

Could someone please explain to me why it’s permissible to abuse, starve and neglect horses in Marinette County and only get a fine of $865 and be placed on a year’s probation?

According to your paper of Aug. 14, page B-8, that’s exactly what happened. I wonder if the horses that felt the cold sting of the euthanasia needle would agree.

In the words of Gandhi, The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.

Maybe inadequate punishments like this contribute to the moral decay of this country more than we realize.

Rocci Downs, D.V.M.

Dear Editor:

In January I addressed Peshtigo School Board, expressing my concerns over lack of education for high school students nationwide on governance, economics and history, particularly American history as it relates to the Revolution, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.

Because we have abandoned our Constitution and the principles of our Founding Fathers, our Republic now has over $17 Trillion ($17,000,000,000,000) in public debt plus over $124 Trillion in unfunded liabilities, which are increasing by more than $1 trillion every month.

My question to the board was, Who do you think they will make pay for all of that? And, how?

Students are not taught the words and the thoughts that led our founding fathers to create our nation as a Republic, not a Democracy. They should be.

Under our Constitution, certain limited responsibilities were given to the Federal government. All other responsibilities were assigned to the States or retained by individual citizens - We the people...

 In a Democracy there is no restraint on the Government. The majority, with cooperating special interest voting block groups, such as Blacks, Whites, Hispanics, Latinos, Illegal Aliens, Feminists, Unions, senior citizens, etc..., including big crony corporations, and giant crony banksters, who are already "too big to fail" can impose its will on the minority.

In a Democracy, politicians come around during the campaign season with promises to their cronies that they will usurp powers, size, scope and spending which far exceed those granted under the Tenth Amendment, which refers to the 18 itemized powers as listed under Article I Section 8 of The Constitution. They steal from us our individual rights, liberty, and property to buy their seats at the altar of power, using the money from our labor, obtained through illegal income taxes on wages and salaries.

In other words, a Democracy is mob rule.

That is why the framers drafted Article IV Section 4 of the Constitution, which states; "The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government..."

In a Republican Form of Government:

*The majority cannot take away our individual inalienable rights endowed us by our Creator, which according to the Ninth Amendment are limitless and not bound by individual Rights enumerated in The Constitution. 

*Sovereignty is held by the individual people as opposed to a Democracy where sovereignty is held by the whole population, the collective.

*The government is governed by rule of Constitutional laws. The elected are bound by oath to live within those limits. They vote "together" in a democratic way, to create laws which do not and cannot exceed the powers, size, scope and spending itemized in The Constitution.

*In our constitutionally limited government, created by our written Constitution, the 18 permitted powers are divided between three separate branches of federal government. According to our nation’s Rule of Constitutional law, states have far more power and spending authority than our Federal Government. Other than the 18 permitted purposes, all needs, wants and desires, according to The Tenth Amendment, are to be handled by and paid for by our individual home states, or are reserved to the people.

How many students know that? How many of their teachers know that?

No matter how you slice it, all of the money the politicians spend comes out of our labor and nowhere else.

I asked the School Board, "How do you expect our students to stand up for their individual rights, and protect their wages, salaries, liberty and property in the face of their elected and non-elected Tenth Amendment enemies if they do not even know the meaning, spirit and intent of our founding documents which protect all of us from a Democracy of mob rule?"

Then I presented them with a 6 DVD set from The National Center for Constitutional Studies which would teach all of the things that our students are not being taught, so that when they graduate they can protect themselves and their wages and salaries from our elected and non-elected Federal public servants.

At a later board meeting I addressed them again and presented another single DVD talking about the agenda by Socialists in America to destroy our Constitutional laws, our individual Rights and individual prosperity.

After nearly six months, they cared so little about the lack of Constitutional knowledge for our High Schools students that they didn 't even take the wrapper off the DVDs.

 I told them, at the last public board meeting, when they returned the DVDs to me with the wrappers still on, that "I am absolutely disgusted that not one board member bothered to watch these DVDs. I ask: what species of knowledge could be more important to the future guardians of Liberty, and even our Republic?

How about you? Are you as disgusted as I?
